About me
I have a diverse range of skills including script, content and copywriting, acting, facilitating comedy improv workshops and English tutoring. With a master's degree in creative and critical writing, I’m experienced in writing scripts, short stories, creative non-fiction and humour articles. I’ve had a range of work published, including short stories for Comma Press and Literature North West and comedy articles for Little Old Lady Comedy and Points in Case. My short plays have been staged at venues such as Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre Studio and Contact Theatre. As a trained actor, I've appeared in plays and short films and performed character-based stand-up and comedy improvisation.
